Does your robot's gluing or welding path deviate from the nominal path? RotoLAB calibrates your tool!

Our RotoLAB measurement system allows you to quickly and fully automatically check and recalibrate your robot tools using 3D measurement.

ROTOLAB | 360° TCP measurement of rotationally symmetric tools

Calibrates tools such as welding and glue guns in seconds - RotoLAB

With RotoLAB, time-consuming re-teaching is a thing of the past. 4 seconds – and the robot controller knows whether the current tool center point (TCP) is within the tolerance range. In the event of a deviation, a full tool measurement is carried out automatically in 30 seconds and the corrected tool coordinates are sent directly to the control.<

Equipped with a 360° sensor, RotoLAB is specifically designed for maximum efficiency in testing and calibrating rotationally symmetric robotic tools.


How the calibration process works with RotoLAB

The short test duration of four seconds allows continuous monitoring of the welding torch. If a threshold is exceeded during a test, calibration is automatically initiated. In the case of minor deviations in the tool data, the changes are automatically transmitted to the robot; in the case of major deviations, the robot stops and the operator must manually confirm the update of the tool data.

The individual process steps

Initial situation

Die Inbetriebnahme kann in wenigen Minuten durchgeführt werden, ohne dass die aktuellen Werkzeugdaten in der Robotersteuerung geändert werden müssen.


The robot moves cyclically with the torch into the RotoLAB. The test is performed using an XYZ measurement. If the torch is centred, the TCP is within the tolerance range.


If the check shows that the torch is not centred, a new XYZ measurement is made. The new tool data is transferred to the control.

Control measurement

The burner is centred again. The TCP (tool center point) is checked again.

Fully integrated into your controller

RotoLAB fully integrated into the robot controller

The RotoLAB system is configured and parameterised directly from your robot’s HMI.

You can integrate tool measurement to your tolerances fully automatically into your production process, or trigger it manually during maintenance work on the robot or tool.

Häufig gestellte Fragen zu RotoLAB

  • Does the tool need to be replaced with a test probe for calibration?
    No. Direct measurement of the current tool is usually used. No special measuring tools are required. With some welding torches it may be necessary to remove the gas nozzle to make the measurement.
  • What kind of Tools can be calibrated using RotoLAB?
    RotoLAB can calibrate all rotation-symetric tools.
  • What types of connection are available for the RotoLAB?
    The RotoLAB system is available as a serial or Ethernet device. The serial system can be integrated with all common fieldbus systems via protocol converters. The Ethernet version and the fieldbus integration also have the advantage that up to 4 robots can share one system (provided they are accessible).
